You Don’t Give Your Heart In Pieces

God is a personal being. He is as close and loving as we allow Him. I haven’t been writing as much lately, as it is one of those seasons where I am walking a little bit in the dark, (no not just because I live in Alaska). The Lord has been teaching me… Even if we are walking through the shadow of the valley of death- He is with us. In fact we might even be closer to Him in those times because we see our need for light- for Him.

Ever feel like the Lord is singing to you rather than you singing to Him. Today He just keeps singing me these lyrics. He wants me to know that no matter what- He loves me, and His love is perfect. That no matter what valleys I walk through in this life, I have hope because He will be there to let me under His wing or chase after me- all so Him and I can be together for eternity.

NOW- stop just for a minute. I want you to make this personal because He means it that way. He came down and took beatings- took all the sin and hurt this world brings (that you might also go through), and then let others kill Him (instead of you). He didn’t rise from the grave to be superior and say “in your face”. He rose to simply say, “I have taken care of the burdens and the barriers–Love, will you come home to me now?”

THAT IS ALL HE WANTS. I’M CRYING AGAIN. HE JUST WANTS US SO BAD. HOW DO WE MISS IT?

Let Him sing this to you about how much He loves you:

 

“Unreserved, Unrestrained

Your love is wild

Your love is wild for me

It isn’t shy, it’s unashamed

Your love is proud

To be seen with me

 

YOU DON’T GIVE YOUR HEART IN PIECES

YOU DON’T HIDE YOURSELF TO TEASE US

 

Uncontrolled, Uncontained

Your love is a fire

Burning bright for me

It’s not just a spark

It’s not just a flame

Your love is a light

That all the world will see

All the world will see

 

Your love’s not fractured

It’s not a troubled mind

It isn’t anxious

It’s not the restless kind

Your love’s not passive

It’s never disengaged

It’s always present

It hangs on every word we say

 

LOVE KEEPS IT PROMISES

IT KEEPS ITS WORD

IT HONORS WHAT’S SACRED

‘CAUSE IT VOWS ARE GOOD

Your love’s not broken

It’s not insecure

Your love’s not selfish

Your love is pure “

-Pieces by Bethel
